Harry Yates, founder and managing director of HouseScan, said: “Despite the problematic landscape created due to COVID-19, the new build market remains a strong investment for UK homeowners, with values continuing to not only climb but doing so at a far greater rate than existing bricks and mortar.
“While an initial investment in a new build property will require homebuyers to pay a premium, it’s worth every penny in the long term.
“Even against the backdrop of a global pandemic and a period of prolonged political uncertainty caused by the EU Referendum, new build values have remained resilient and registered some extremely strong uplifts over the last five years.”
